How to restart Touchscreen on Model 3

Restarting the Touchscreen

If your touchscreen is unresponsive or
demonstrates unusual behavior, you can
restart it to potentially resolve the issue.

Warning: Only restart the touchscreen
while the vehicle is stopped and in Park.
The car status display, safety warnings,
backup camera, etc. will not be visible
during the restart.

  1. Shift into Park.
    Starting and Powering Off
  2. Hold down both scroll buttons on the
    steering wheel until the touchscreen turns
    black and the Tesla logo appears.
  3. Wait approximately 30 seconds for the
    touchscreen to restart. If the touchscreen
    is still unresponsive or demonstrating
    unusual behavior after a few minutes, try
    powering the vehicle off (touch Controls >
    Safety & Security > Power Off).

Note: Restarting the touchscreen using the scroll
buttons does not power Tesla Model 3 off and on.
